Elizabeth Thomas' sister is speaking out again about her missing sister. While the whereabouts of the 15-year-old are still unknown, Sarah Thomas says that she had a strange conversation with Elizabeth on the morning of her disappearance. “She said, ‘I’m going to be gone,’ ” Sarah said to People. “She had a strange edge to her voice. She said, ‘I’m going to get back at 6 tonight. If I’m not back by 6, call the police and come find me.’“
Sarah points to other things Elizabeth said (and did), which seem to hint that she was making plans to not be around. The weekend before her alleged kidnapping by former teacher (and presumed lover) Ted Cummins, Elizabeth told Sarah she couldn’t attend a party “if it was past Monday.” She also said she had to break up with her boyfriend because she “wasn’t allowed to be with him anymore.”
Earlier, it was reported in the same People story that Elizabeth "idolized" the much older Cummins. The hunt for Elizabeth and Cummins continues.
